Missing Steam valve, where can I purchase one?

My system was missing the steam valve. It is always out of stock on the WP site. Any other places to purchase one?
Thanks

    I ordered this from a home shopping network and it didn't come with the valve and I didn't realize it until I used it a few times. I've never used one before.

You will never get one that way sorry . the problem is these come out of china and are marked with a brand name , after the factory has made its run and changes style thats it NO MORE PARTS . i would try E BAY buy a whole unit used , cheep. and then you have your valve and a lot of extra parts for the next problem you run into ...... just be sure the one your bidding on is the SAME is yours , a lot of the look a lot alike but are not , good luck

Why is steam and water coming out of the safety valve of the Russel Hobbs preasure cooker


When a pressure cooker is working normally, some steam and a little water is supposed to come out of the valve, that's how you know it's up to pressure.

Still very new Tedelex pressure cooker: the red-headed pop-up valve seems to take for ever before "popping" and allowing steam pressure to build up. How long should I wait? Thanks, Nic


My pressure cooker does that too, you would have to wait until the steam starts to come out a lot, then it will pop out and start building up pressure. Hope this helps.

My pressure cooker always makes a hissing sound. Is that close properly?


As long as the lid is properly locked into position it should be closed properly. A certain amount of air and steam will escape from the valve on the lid and will male a hissing sound but this is perfectly normal.

The ladies at church continually want to place water in the large roasters and then put the insert in place. I don't believe this is necessary or safe since the water and steam are trapped between the...


Hi Jerry,
The ladies are right.

The appliance is called a steam table, and it operates on the same principle as a double-boiler. The design uses water as a thermal buffer between the heating element and the food, and ensures that the food is kept at food-safe serving temperature (varies by food, but typically over 140F, sometimes over 170F) but won't let the food get hotter than 212F so it doesn't burn or overcook the food.

If it's splattering boiling water, then it's overfilled and you should reduce the amount of water, but only by a little bit. A steam table should NEVER be allowed to run completely dry.


As for the steam getting you when you take out a pan -- that's true, and you do have to be very careful when you remove pans from a steam table.

Steam coming out of floating valve on handle.


No. if the steam is coming out, the vent valve is not seated on the vent and pressure won't build up. Either remove the plastic cover from the vent valve or slide it up enough so that the valve seals on the vent. If you remove the plastic cap, you will need to manually tilt the valve to "quick-vent" the cooker. Watch out for steam burns! Should work fine after that. You need to unplug the cooker and re-plug it to reset the "E4" error message.

Why doesn't my cover fit tightly? 5.5 Qt Rival Crock Pot - lid does not fit tightly and hot water is bubbling and spitting out of the crock pot making a mess and an unsafe situtation...help! Is this a...


There's nothing you need to do differently except place the cooker where a little splashing won't hurt anything. This is typical of all crock pots. The cover fits loosely because it must allow steam to escape. When water turns to steam, it expands. If not allowed to escape, the steam pressure would explode the vessel. The simplest and cheapest way to let the steam escape is to let the lid lift freely. Some of the steam re-condenses into water as it escapes, and then it sputters and splashes as more steam comes out. They could make a more complex system to control the mess, but then a crock pot would be bigger, more expensive, and harder to wash. I know this might not be the answer you hoped for, but it's a truthful answer to your question so I hope you'll rate it accordingly.

Try this web page - it has all replacement parts for WP products. I think the lid on on the second page.
